This latest episode was recorded shortly after co-host Tom Schneider had clinched the 2007 WSOP Player of the Year, narrowly defeating Jeffrey Lisandro who came up just short of passing Tom in the last POY points event, the $5,000 Deuce-to-Seven w/Rebuys (Event No. 54). So Schneider, Dan “Pokerati” Michalski, and Karridy Askenasy talk a bit about that. Schneider also tells the story of an interesting haircut he received just prior to the Main Event getting underway.
If you want to read more about Tom Schneider’s exciting WSOP run, check out Steve Horton’s recent two-part interview with the Donkey Bomber over on PokerNews -- here’s Part I, and here’s Part II. Some interesting stuff in there about Tom’s mindset throughout the series, as well as how over the course of the WSOP he began to develop (as he says) “a totally different perspective on being able to make final tables, and being able to win final tables.”
By the way, after you read Tom talking about his plan to “run over” opponents during the end game, go look up “schneider” in the dictionary. Seems to me like his plan should have been obvious to anyone with access to a copy of Webster’s.
Looking for more?
Here’s my post about Schneider winning his first bracelet in Event No. 5, the $2,500 Omaha/8-Stud/8 event. Here’s another written on the eve of Schneider winning his second bracelet (in Event No. 46, the $1,000 Stud Eight-or-Better event) that also discusses his book, Oops! I Won too Much Money. And here’s the one about him clinching the POY.
Oh, and if you’re interested in rethinking how the WSOP determined this year’s player of the year, Schneider himself invited folks to do just that in an interesting post over on Pokerati.
Word is the Beyond the Table guys have another show in the can. And no, I don’t mean in the toilet. Though that could be true as well . . . .
